of california and senator, we appreciate your taking the time. i know you're out on the campaign trail. fighting for the president today. let me just ask you this question. >> and -- and congresswoman -- and congresswoman shelly berkeley. i wanted to make sure you knew, i was also out in nevada, campaigning for shelly berkeley, who we're trying to make a senator from the house. first, i have to say, the president did put the wars back on budget. so it is true that george w. had them off budget. they're on budget. so that criticism is wrong. let me tell you how i respond to everything you said. and i listened to it intently. >> yes. >> i've run 11 successful elections for myself. they're hard, they're difficult. but it is true, at the end, you still have those undecideds. and even though president obama, as you point out, has talked about these ideas. for example, one you didn't mention is taking away tax breaks for companies who ship jobs overseas. the reason he wants to put this together, they're still undecided, and the republicans are complaining, where's the beef, where's the plan. so he put
on the west coast in california were a record high. the national average, $3.80. in california almost a dollar higher. one way to bring down coasts, more drilling, and that is a highly political topic. today she will is trying to do that. drilling in the arctic sea for the first time in two decades, say they could meet a fifth of our country's energy needs. environmental groups are fighting it hard, saying the unpredictable climate means another oil spill is likely and could be catastrophic and an oil spill could take two years to stop because of the thick winter ice. that's a terrifying thought. so this is new round of drilling worth the risk and is shell taking enough precautions to prevent a deep water disaster on steroids? we're "outfront" in the alaskan sea. and we can see the weather looks grim. what is shell doing? >> reporter: winter is approaching. they have about 15 more days to drill out here. they're going to drill until the end of october. shell, this is where all of the controversy is. those people out there are drilling down 1,500 feet into the sea floor of the chuck chi sea. th
they show, maybe all voters are not created equal. new york, california and texas, they are three of the biggest states yet the candidates don't go to them except to raise money. because well, we know who voters are going to cast their ballots for in those states. so shouldn't we reform the way we pick a president? john samples is director of the center for representative government at the cato institute. as you heard john king going through this, he said they don't think it's probable you could have one win the popular vote and the other win the electoral but it's possible, and obviously, it did happen with al gore. so i guess i struggle with this one because in my head i feel when there's a conflict between the two, shouldn't the will of the people, the popular vote, win? >> well, in the constitution, and that's the rules of the game as we go in, there's another system established which is that the states have a role to play in all of this as well as population in each of the states. so going into it, both candidates and americans know what the rules are. so when the outcome com
. most recently in california, in the 'tea party election of 2010, polls said this measure might pass. california looked like it was on the verge. went down to defeat on election day. it's a significant tale for folks especially in a state this dopely divided, but what's fascinated is this way this is being pitched. they're really trying to put schools forward on the issue. it's a different tactic than we've seen in the past. >> well, i can't wait till it comes up during the debate because i just bet that it will as it should. thanks very much. >>> ahead, three americans were killed in afghanistan today. it is the latest in a spree of deadly attacks targeting american troops in a war that goes on and on and on. and while supposedly the war is winding down, people are still answering that call of duty and putting their lives on the line for america. next, a four, a mother and their son all deploying together. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowled
's the challenge to the defense of marriage act and also the challenge to proposition 8 in california. without doing a huge legal lesson, safe to say that proposition 8, if it is adjudiated by the high court, could have a sweeping effect across the nation. clearly you would support that. but do you expect the supreme court is going to take up proposition 8 given the controversy in the election year? >> my guess is that the supreme court will be a little more cautious and if they take up this case or even let the ninth circuit court of appeals case stand, that it will apply more narrowly than to be this kind of sweeping across the nation change. i think the defense of marriage act, so-called, is much more likely to be taken up and much more likely to be successful in the sense that we have this situation in which i'm married to my husband, mark, legally in the state of new hampshire because we have marriage equality, and yet the federal government is prohibited from recognizing my marriage, my legal marriage to my partner, and therefore, the various responsibilities and benefits and so on that
in benghazi might have been inspired that video from california. it then became more clear sometime later that was not the case, and that this probably was a terrorist attack. i find credible and believable based on my own experience in government that sometimes rerts change, and your understanding of a complex matter does change over time. i think this attack on the president is politically inspired. i don't think it has much merit at all. >> a final word to you though, a lot of these points about who was responsible, at least the fact al qaeda-linked groups were was known within 24 hours by the intelligence community. we didn't know about it, but they knew. >> i mean, that's what we understand today, and yet, five days afterwards the u.n. ambassador was telling us it was inspired by a video and demonstrations in cairo. congress has to get on top of this and give us some answers here. i think the american people are confused about the terrible tragedy that inspired in benghazi almost six months ago. >> thank you. >>> benjamin netanyahu's power and influence over who will win in a few wee

? that is the key question tonight and joining us to talk about it is democratic congresswoman from california, debbie wasserman schultz. great to see you. let me your state chose president obama 51-48% over john mccain. obviously that was a crucial victory and now, according to this latest poll, there fs a big swing in this, trailing mitt romney. what happened? >> well, look, florida is always, always a very close race in the presidential election. this year will be no exception. one thing that's important to keep in mind is that florida has gone with the incumbent president in every election since 1984. the key thing is if you look at polls in the last 18 days, the obama campaign began our building of our grass roots ground operation back in the beginning of the 2008 campaign and we have never left florida. we have a ground game that is superior to the romney campaign and if you look at our turnout operation when it comes to early voting, we've actually, when it comes to absentee balloting, which republicans usually have a big advantage of, we have closed that gap in their advantage by more
